    In this post I will provide Census data relating to William Henry Crawcour son of Henry and Mary Briddon. Transcription errors in the surname of Crawcour presented problems but I have traced William Henry Crawcour to 1871 Census and up to 1911:
    As a re-cap William Henry Crawcour married Mary Jane Thorpe in 1869. In the 1871 Census William Henry Crawcour appears with his wife and mother in law. Ancestry.Com have made a transcription error and the family are named as CRAMOM- RG 10 3300 88 17 (Crown Copyright TNA) New Street Lords Hold Rutland
    Mary J THORPE H Widow 58 Postmans Widow b Rutland Cottesmore
    William H CRAWCOUR son ( this appears to be an error and should read son in law)Married Commercial Traveller 31 b Middlesex ( this also is an error given he was born in Nottingham)
    Mary J Crawcour dau M 20 b Rutland Oakham
    William H Crawcour grandson 6mths b Rutland Oakham

    This is the 1851 Census showing Mary J Thorpe wife of George Thorpe:

    This is a follow up post on William Henry Crawcour 1870-1938 and Kate Frances Whitelocke 1870-1942 (confirmation of her death date is required from South African Records). The focus of the post is on the Death Notice for William Henry Crawcour in South Africa and on the children of Kate Frances Whitelock from her first marriage to Thomas Roworth Featherstone 1864-1897.These two children William Roworth Featherstone and Elsie Roworth Featherstone were the step children of William Henry Crawcour.
    The reason for my adding them to the data base is because various family trees on the lines have failed to trace them.

    I have already posted on this thread data on William Henry Crawcour 1870-1938 and his parents and siblings. In addition, I have recorded his military service. I am aware that he appears as a Chelsea Pensioner in receipt of an army pension but currently do not have his full service record.
    The South Africa, Pietermaritzburg Estate Files 1846-1950 have a Death Notice for William Henry Crawcour died 1938:
    William Henry Crawcour b 1870 Oakham Rutland England died 18 October 1938 Durban

    Married-Kate Frances Crawcour-Married Community-Nottingham England
    Died Addington Hospital Durban
    Name of children deceased or majors/minors Nil
    Personal Clothing left;Property of Estate exceeding 300 Nil

    A will was left by William. The handwriting for the will introduction is difficult to read- Kate Frances Crawcour address 37 C?..Road ..? Durban
    Will made 20 May 1930
    Wife Kate Frances Crawcour born Whitelocke formerly Featherstone married in England Currently residing Boksburg Transvaal Province Witnesses J Berks; H Solomon
    The will is brief and names each other as sole executor and beneficiary

    I will post on the Featherstone children from the first marriage between Kate Frances Whitelock and Thomas Roworth Featherstone.

    There is an 1899 address record for Mrs Kate Featherstone 21 Millicent Road West Bridgford

    Currently, I do not know where William Henry Crawcour was living 1911.

    With regard to William Roworth Feathersone the son of Kate and Thomas there was a Rootsweb message (I will confirm the date/source) which referred to 3 Featherstone sisters from Nottinghamshire leaving the UK and settling in New Zealand.
    In the case of William Roworth Feathersone he married Doris Adelaide DEARMAN -GRO Marriage Index William Roworth Featherstone-Doris A Dearman Dec qtr 1917 Mansfield 7b 241

    The couple settled in Auckland NZ.Doris was born 1898 to parents James John Dearman 1875-1932-Alice Adelaide Dutton 1876-?

    NZ Electoral Rolls show 1928 Willie Featherstone surfaceman and Doris Adelaide Featherstone in Kaukapaka up to 1935 and in 1963 the couple were living 21 Leamington Road Gen Eden with Willie retired. In 1981 Doris was at 7 Mickle Street Te Atatu Aucklnad Pensioner.

    The NZ Cemetery Records 51069 show Willie Featherstone 1893-1980 died 18 Feb Lovingly Remembered -Waikumete Cemetery Book of Memories Auckland NZ.
    Currently, I do not have any record of when Doris died or is buried.
    I have no current data on Elsie Roworth Featherstone post 1911 but am still researching.
